Spider Vein Treatment in the Minneapolis, MN Area
Spider Veins are red or blue veins visible on the surface of the skin. These veins are very small with short, jagged lines, which make them look like spider webs. Spider veins can appear anywhere but are most commonly seen on the legs.
Spider veins are usually caused by a backup of blood from varicose veins, but they may also result from sun exposure, injury or hormonal changes.
Spider veins alone are mainly a cosmetic concern and are not harmful, and most are asymptomatic. However, if your spider veins are accompanied by symptoms like itching, burning, tenderness or bleeding, it’s time to call the specialists at Metro Vein and Cosmetic Surgery.
One of the most effective treatment options for spider veins is visual sclerotherapy, which is an injectable solution that dries out the lining of the vein and causes it to disappear. Click here for more information about visual sclerotherapy.
